#MSWL Still want my BEARTOWN! Drop me in the middle of a tight-knit community facing a reckoning and shape the conflict through the whispers of neighbors and friends. Get me so invested in the characters that I start to care about sports! Surprise me! See: LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE

#MSWL coming of age stories that flirt with danger, suspense, and death. Juicy adult novels that explore the sinister side of friendships, relationships, and lost innocence (bonus points for alternating timelines). See: THE GIRLS, MY DARK VANESSA, YOU WILL KNOW ME, SECRET HISTORY

The Fear Street movies are everything I love about horror and more. #MSWL I’d love to see anything along these lines in YA horror. Make it contemporary, sassy, full of friendship, enemies that band together, and don’t forget the jump scares. #FearStreetNetflix

The next HELLO GIRLS remains on the top of my #MSWL, but as I consider endless, emotional, meaningful platonic love and the types of female friendships that are ride or die in the way my own have been—especially as teens, in high school, in YA—let's add BOOKSMART as an example.

I love the quirkiness and humor and vibes of TAZ (The Adventure Zone) so much. So if someone wants to send me a YA about a bunch of friends doing their actual play/gaming podcast and just living their best lives I would be forever in your debt. #mswl

I can’t stop thinking about the twists in Panic. I’d LOVE to see something in this vein with a friendship twist and some sort of romantic entanglement. Make it dark, twisted, and set somewhere fresh and new. #MSWL

27. UNDEAD GIRL GANG by @ms_lilyanderson

I LOVE this book. It’s funny, it’s witchy, it has teeth—and it’s also about friendship 💜 The vibes are just perfect.

(Ahem #MSWL for anything comped to this book for those reasons)

Finished 6/10
